Dr Luke Myers Research Areas
- Marine energy: Research in wave and tidal energy encompass development of new knowledge which contributes to our understanding of the waves and flows in the sea (resource assessment and kinetic energy potential), the conversion of the resource by appropriate technologies such horizontal axis turbines and fundamental understanding of specific wave energy devices.
- MicroWind Turbines : Research covers resource modelling at various scales. Research has included centrally-funded research councils and work on behalf of device developers and large electricity consumers.
